CORRECTION - Messi Not Only One to Blame For Argentina Defeat - Bracamonte

World Cup debutants Iceland are dreaming of the knockout stage and writing a new chapter in one of the most outstanding stories of global football in recent years.

Valiant Iceland who held a starry Argentina to a 1-1 draw in their first ever World Cup game will lock horns with an experienced Nigeria side in their second Group D encounter at the Volgograd Arena.

Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr made some changes to the team that suffered a 2-0 defeat in the hands of Group leader Croatia in their first match.

While Mikel Obi is ready to play anywhere to help the Super Eagles, Rohr came out all gun blazing, blasting the criticism over Mikel as an attacking midfielder and hinted that he might use him in a similar role against Iceland. The Nigeria game in Volgograd will be "a bit more open", said the 34-year-old 'keeper, whose string of saves, most notably from a Messi penalty, kept the 2014 finalists at bay.

"They've been in the World Cup finals five times, three times they have moved on to the next round", he said. The all-important game will be of great significance for Argentina too, as the result will decide their future in the competition.

"Wishing the boys the best of luck against Iceland".

Iceland are favourites for the match. Odion Ighalo, Shehu Abdullahi and Alex Iwobi have been dropped to the bench while Kenneth Omeruo, Kelechi Iheanacho and Ahmed Musa are on from the start.
